Wildlife Holidays in India
Unique, still mysterious and forever fascinating, the natural history and wealth of the Indian Sub-continent offers to naturalists and tourists an alternative to Africa. But there is a fundamental difference between the wild life experience of the Indian Jungle and that found in Africa. The tropical jungles are dense and most creatures have mastered the art of camouflage, are difficult to spot unless you know what to look for. The chances of viewing a tiger in Ranthambore or tracking leopards on the back of an elephant in Bandavgarh are much better. Kanha offers the full glory of India's wild life.
